2023’s strategic strides

We want to kick off by celebrating the major company milestones that took place throughout the year.

This started in February when we appointed Jarrad Hubble as interim CEO, bringing in his extensive experience of rapidly scaling fintechs. This aligned perfectly with March’s move to expand our business development team, readying us for major partnerships ahead.

May then saw acceleration on two fronts: we proudly announced Jarrad as permanent CEO while welcoming Marcus Treacher to our board as Executive Chair. Their combined expertise proved invaluable in progressing partnerships and product development.

That month also brought our Banks Working Group launch, with over a dozen industry-leading banks gathering to identify pain points in global settlement and work with us on our network-based solution.

Over the second half of 2023, we sustained this momentum by revealing additional partnerships, including those with Humo and Credo, expanding our capacity for inclusive, seamless cross-border transactions.

We then marked a major milestone as the year closed out with the successful demonstration of real-time cross-border settlements on our platform in December. This achievement displayed our network’s readiness for international deployment at scale. in the news

First up we have Executive Chair Marcus Treacher, who penned an examination in The Fintech Times of how introducing different currencies exponentially increases the complexity of moving money worldwide. His article called for “rewriting the rulebook” that guides cross-border transactions.

This dialogue laid the foundation for Marcus to explore the launch of the FedNow instant payments systems in May and June, speaking with both FXC Intelligence and The Fintech Times to explore its impact on global settlements. then successfully delivered this thought leadership through live events at September’s SIBOS conference, where we partnered with The Banker for an event discussing necessary improvements to cross-border liquidity provisions.

Meanwhile, in another major region for RTGS, Head of APAC, Ed Dovey met with Payment Expert to delve into the global dynamics reshaping payments today. From adopting T+1 settlement cycles to facilitating trade without the U.S. dollar, his interview shed light on the next phase of financial infrastructure advancement.

To close a monumental year, Yahoo Finance spotlighted co-founder Nick Ogden in its popular My First Boss segment, reflecting on his hugely successful career founding four major businesses that earned him the title “The founding father of Fintech”.
